Creating meaningful weddings that reflect your love...
I am the Reverend Leslie Becknell Marx, and I conduct wedding ceremonies in Ashland, OR and the surrounding Rogue Valley. I will work with you to design a service that reflects your understanding of love and marriage.
The ceremony is the heart of your wedding day where you experience the transformation of becoming married. We will create a ceremony that expresses your love, tells your story, conveys your values and reflects your style.
I have performed weddings in churches, gardens, country clubs, and on the beach. The ceremonies have ranged from traditional to highly creative and personalized. I am an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister with a Masters of Divinity, trained in the history and practice of sacred rituals to mark life transitions.
I welcome all couples - straight, gay, lesbian, interfaith, spiritual but not religious, curious or confused about religion and spirituality, previously married, with or without children - anyone who wants to create a meaningful wedding ceremony to honor their love.
I use the term “wedding with meaning” to reflect that you are in the process of wedding each other; you are not simply planning an event. I will work with you to help ensure that the wedding ceremony reflects the life you are creating together. I also offer counseling and workshops to establish a strong foundation for your marriage.

I look forward to meeting you and enjoying the fulfillment of crafting a meaningful ceremony and the honor of officiating at your wedding.
